Advanced Oral Hygiene: Promote Optimal Oral Health with Probiotics

Life Extension introduces Advanced Oral Hygiene lozenge that contains probiotics to help maintain healthy teeth and gums. The probiotics two strains of beneficial bacteria, S. salivarius and B. coagulans may also help boost immune system response.

Press Release (PressBurner) Jul 24, 2009 - (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) Based on extensive research, Life Extension introduces Advanced Oral Hygiene, a convenient lozenge that contains the probiotics S. salivarius and B. coagulans, two strains of beneficial bacteria to help maintain healthy teeth and gums. Similar to the mechanisms involved with probiotics which target the gut, these probiotics populate the mouth cavity with beneficial bacteria which provide protection against harmful bacteria that are implicated in the accumulation of dental film.

An Advanced Oral Hygiene lozenge popped in the mouth once or twice daily after brushing goes to work immediately, ramping up production of bacterial-inhibiting compounds and restoring a healthy oral balance.

Scientists have found that S. salivarius and B. coagulans may also help boost immune system response. A recent study shows that oral ingestion of S. salivarius helps inhibit the production of inflammatory cytokines throughout the body. In vitro studies show that B. coagulans enhances white blood cells’ surveillance for bacterial invaders, boosts immune response to a simulated bacterial attack, and enhances the activity of another type of immune cell called natural killer cells.

Advanced Oral Hygiene may also be an important answer for those with bad breath! A clinical study shows that 85% of subjects with halitosis who received S. salivarius experienced a substantial improvement with lower bacterial counts as compared to 30% in the placebo group.
